A Joy That Sustains Our Hearts

How do you feel about this beautiful earth? There is so much to bring joy and delight to our hearts – from sunsets to alpine mountains, from birdsong to waves lapping on the shore, from the aroma of fresh bread to the fragrance of a spring garden, from the sensation of diving into cool water on a hot day to the feel of pressed cotton sheets when you snuggle up in bed, from the taste of ripe fruit that dribbles down your chin to your favourite cake still warm from the oven. There are so many moments that lift our hearts and fill us with joy.

And of course here on WordPress THE 2022 GREAT BLOGGERS’ BBAKE OFF is going to be shining attention on:

The Joy Of Baking

During the past few years, there has been lots of mention of certain terms in the media:

  • zero waste
  • carobon footprint reduction
  • sustainability

For those of us who love this magnificent planet, that means using our loaf when we think about baking. Which is why one of the special features of this year’s BAKE OFF is:


What does baking sustainably mean? Well, do you remember this amazing idea from Malin Nordblom – her cake-cycling creation that used leftover cake to make an entirely new yummy cake creation?

Many bloggers have share with us over the past few years photographs of spectacular bakes which featured local produce, fruit (or vegetables) that were in season.

We would love to see your sustainable baking ideas . If you have a bake that uses leftovers (to avoid food waste) or has a low carbon footprint (using local seasonal produce)…or promotes sustainability on any other regards, please do send in your photos. We are giving out special accolade badges to bakers who can show us how to taste the JOY OF BAKING in a sustainable way.

Please send in your photos to:


We are already preparing the posts to feature our GREAT BLOGGERS on WordPress which will be paraded on BAKE OFF weekend:
